An active 2010 hurricane season continues, with powerful Hurricane Igor and Tropical Storm Julia swirling out in the Atlantic Ocean.

Neither storm poses an immediate threat to the U.S.

Igor is a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. There are currently no watches or warnings associated with this storm, which could strengthen to a Category 5 hurricane later today, the hurricane center said.

Igor is 940 miles east of the Northern Leeward islands. A five-day projection of Igor's path shows it headed toward Bermuda by this coming weekend, but staying far off the U.S. East Coast.

Julia, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph, was moving west-northwest away from the southernmost Cape Verde Islands this morning. Julia could become a hurricane in a couple of days, the hurricane center said.
